The timing of Fandango’s Provocative Question this week:
Do you have a preference with respect to the length of blog posts you read? Does the number of words in a post affect how you read it or even if you will read it? What is your average post length?
…is interesting because I recently decided that I would try to write a longer post on an issue of our times every week, or two…or three.
This is one of them. I answer Fandango’s question, but I also explore some thoughts related to why along the way…because I think they might affect most every communication these days.
Engagement not length
How long a post should be, in my opinion, is as long as is needed to express one’s thought.
If something catches my imagination or gets me thinking It can be pretty long. I don’t like rambling, but some thoughts take more explanation than others. And I never look at or think about word count.
